FiNisHeD KniTTinG

I have had this pattern for some time and I finally got to use it... Yeah
Last month I started knitting... but this month I actually finished the jumper.
Sharon hosts LeTs BooK It... you can read all about LBI over HeRe... And I love playing along with her and her friends each month.

I knitted with a pretty "red" coloured yarn & the pattern was a NiCe easy one to knit at night.
Thanks SHaRoN for the encouragement each & every month to use up those "books" sitting collecting dust. I'm pretty sure this jumper will be seen on a little grandie really soon.
I really just need to wrap it up... & give it to her.
This jumper pattern is called Oh So Cute and I'm knitting it in 8 ply.
You can join in Lets Book It... by simply clicking on over to HeRe.

SMaLL ITeM

I grabbed a few hours yesterday & spent them in my cubbyhole.
I finished a small Christmas Cushion which measures 10 inch x 12 inch.
I made the front with a PLuM PuDDinG appliqued on it & stitched a border around the centre piece.
I used the same border fabric for the back.
I'm very HaPPy with how it turned out.
I will eventually place a pattern on my web page.

I used my stash/scraps to complete this item... so another project was added to the list...

A BLocK & A WiNNeR

It's marvellous what you can accomplish when two grandies are at day care...
I mentioned a "House & Garden" block swap I am in with ladies from our guild... in a post here... & as we made & swapped 10 blocks, I needed 1 of my own block for my quilt.
This is the one I finished... it just needs a good press... so with the others it now waits.
